San Pietro Church

The little church of San Pietro dates back to 500/600 A.D. Is located about  200 m. from a settlement that has its origins between the Middle Bronze Age and the Roman epoch, which in the early Middle Ages became then know as Gardola.

This little Church at the entrance to Gardola, with its splendid view of the lake, now houses a small museum with tombs from the early Middle Ages and a beautiful mullioned window.

The Church is open to visitors (free) - there is also a little guide in Italian and English available from the Tourist Information Office in Via Europa 7.
